The International Plant Protection Convention (IPPC) has recently issued a call to train facilitators to support the design and evaluation of pest risk management decision support tools to improve market access negotiations. The tools are being developed and enhanced as part of the Rolling out Systems Approach Globally project. The IPPC Secretariat also re-opened a call for trade case proposals, preferably targeting facilitators who come from countries or regions presenting trade cases.
How to apply:

The training consists of a ten-hour review of phytosanitary principles and standards to be completed prior to participating in a one-week on-site training, which will take place in early 2019. Successful applicants will attend a second week of training and continue group learning for up to one year through monthly calls. After the training, the facilitators will qualify as resource experts and trainers at the national and regional level.
The project Rolling out System Approach Globally: sharing tools for enhanced application of System Approach and market negotiation on plant pest risk was developed by the Standards and Trade Development Facility (STDF) and is being implemented by the IPPC Secretariat, in collaboration with the Centre for Environmental Policy and Imperial College London (ICL). The project aims to support National Plant Protection Organizations (NPPOs) in designing and evaluating risk management plans for trade agriculture.
